Kumio Kurachi

Kumio Kurachi has been played on NTS in shows including Emotional Landscapes, featured first on 27 June 2019. Songs played include A Siren At 5 O'Clock.

Kurachi started his musical practice in Tokyo and since the 80s has actively played and toured all over Japan. Now he is based in Fukuoka, the biggest city in Kyushu, the southern island of Japan.

Kurachi's unique guitar tunings are inspired by the Koto. Kurachi puts several capotastos -cut in halves- through the guitar neck. His lyrical world is very surreal, unexpected and surprising and his singing style could refer to chanson or theatrical plays.

Kurachi is highly respected and admired…
